Gender Inequality in Prison

Write a 6-page final paper (APA style, double spaced, and 12 pt. font). The final paper will include several sections and must incorporate at least eight readings from the course and two outside recourses.

First, define mass incarceration, drawing on historical and structural dimensions.
Outline a particular component of mass incarceration, perhaps on bail, jail expansion, transgender rights, institutional violence, healthcare, or labor exploitation (and many more examples!). Students will discuss ways in which the chosen topic is a component in mass incarceration and will also draw on how persists in various areas (violence in prison, how the media influence these actions).
